Elizabeth calls the B.C. salmon season of 2019 a disaster

On Monday, February 3rd, 2020 in Climate Change, Democracy, News, Parliament, Question Period

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the hon. Prime Minister.
The B.C. salmon season of 2019 was a complete disaster. It constituted an emergency situation for many indigenous peoples for whom salmon is a staple food of deep cultural and spiritual significance.
For the fishermen, tendermen and shore-workers, it is an economic disaster. These groups wrote and asked the government before the election for emergency salmon relief. The United Fishermen and Allied Workers’ Union and The Native Brotherhood of British Columbia have still had no answer.
When will salmon relief come for these communities?
